My son had just learned to swim in this pool the day before, and here he is revelling in the new activities available to him.
The light looked pretty good for the pool, the leaping boy and the background. I took several shots, but only this one has him really bursting out of the foreground with the tossed-up ball perfectly framed by the tall buildings. He's clearly nowhere near catching it!
This is a crop - only half the frame. The full photo is also fun, with onlookers and the ball-tosser himself. That was the version I sent out to the folks. But it's private. The cropped version is a better composition anyway.
This was my first family vacation with the digital camera left at home; only analog and a handful of Kodak Gold. Result: I was more aware of the moment, more aware of the light, took fewer photos, but took more worthwhile photos. The camera itself was also a kind of beautiful object and people asked questions about it. It felt great; I'll do it again!
